HTC to Shut Down Its Movies Service in the UK
HTC Watch is a service that has been offered by HTC for some time, offering movie rentals and purchases on mobile devices. Last year, HTC announced that it was shutting down the service in multiple European countries, expressing a realignment of business strategy as the sole reason. Now, users of the service located in the United Kingdom have been notified via email that the service will be unavailable for them starting March 31, 2014. Movies that have been purchased by users located within the United Kingdom must be downloaded to a compatible device before the shutdown occurs, or the movie will be inaccessible for viewing.
Besides the emails regarding the shutdown of the service, no other notifications have been provided by HTC concerning its HTC Watch service.
